Kodiak home of bears , wild salmon , bald eagles and ABM target missiles

Bruce Gagnon posts details of a trip
2 years ago to Kodiak Island to the launch site for Sundays target missile, on a far-flung part of the island that was known for the best beach,large nests of bald eagles and salmon swelled rivers. They told me about the Kodiak bear and the native Alaskan villages that would be within range of any rocket that went haywire after any aborted launch.

Kodiak launches would be friendly satellites to help get better cable TV and the like.

As it turns out there has yet to be a civilian launch from Kodiak. All launches so far have been tests for the Pentagon's Star Wars system. The very first launch had to be aborted after lift-off and plunged into the clean waters of the ocean - where some of the very best salmon fishing in the world is located.

New launch centers are now being built in New Mexico and recently Bruce has heard from activists in Nova Scotia who said one is being contemplated there.

Bruce says that Poland and the Czech Republic, because of citizen opposition, are backing away from volunteering to host a U.S. "missile defense" base in their countries. Bruce reckons that the UK led by shadow dictator Tony Blair and japan have pencilled in sites already.

Bruce also points out that defence contractors / major oilcos stock prices July 2003 to July 2006 have risen as follows ..

- General Dynamics from $27.53 to $69.93
- Lockheed Martin $52 to $75
- Boeing $33 to $77
- ExxonMobil $36 to $65
- Chevron $36 to $66
- Halliburton $22 to $74
- Fluor $34 to $87
